Another Christmas present can be crossed off my list. This was a very quick knit, in that it only took me two days to do. It was all seed stitch....my favorite! Might I remind you all of the seed stitch baby blanket of
doom never-ending seed stitch?
For the Marian cowl, I cast on very loosely so that I would get a good stretch to it. I bound off loosely as well, but not as loosely as I thought it would have been - the bind off edge is little tight...but it wears well, so hopefully it won't be a problem. I've never worn a cowl before, so I'm not sure how they work exactly.
The pattern called for an optional twist to make it a mobius, and I opted to not do it. Mostly because I forgot to intentionally twist the first stitch and I always chant in my head "Do Not Twist" when joining in the round. I think if I knit another one, I might add the twist. This was also the first project I've knit in the round NOT using the magic loop method.
